Royal Jordanian and Kuwait Airways said on Sunday passengers could take laptops and large electronic devices in the cabin on flights to the United States, the latest Middle East airlines to be exempted from a US ban.
The Turkish Airlines said on 4 July, 2017 that the US will lift the ban on electronics on flights from Istanbul from the next day.
Kelly said last week he planned a "step by step" security enhancement plan that included short, medium-term and longer-term improvements that would take at least a year to implement fully.
Reuters and other media outlets reported in early May that an expansion was likely, but more than a month later, the U.S. government has offered no timetable for making a decision. Lapan said no decision was expected this week.
Extending the ban to all European airports would affect nearly 400 flights a day and cover 30 million travellers.
The Donald Trump administration is considering banning laptops from the passenger cabins of all international flights to and from the US.
In March, the U.S. announced laptop restrictions on flights originating from 10 airports in countries including the UAE, Qatar and Turkey.
The UK has banned phones, laptops and other consumer electronics larger than 16 cm in length, 9.3 cm in width and 1.5 cm in depth.
Emirates Airline and Etihad Airways have not been advised of any new restrictions on carrying electronic devices on US flights, the Middle East airlines said on Tuesday.
